Designed by William Ferguson and built 1897-9. Large Gothic church with halls at rear (south); red (Corncockle) ashlar, rock-faced and with polished dressings; slate roofs, with unusually decorative fleche-like axial ventilator/belfry. Has 2 "fronts", viz symmetrical north main gable with terraced lawn to front, large perpendicular-traceried window at gallery level, 'towerlets' over buttresses; east flank, fronting Beech Avenue might be seen as a variant of the formula used at eg Clifford's Titwood or Cathcart, where the flank is the 'front', viz gabled porch at right, transept left (twin-gabled in this instance) all linked by side aisle - though here, the aisle is 2-storeyed, with main roof swept over. Adjoining, is a symmetrical range comprising vestry/ offices, etc, 2-storeyed, with half-projecting octagonal end towers with polygonal roofs; main hall beyond has perpendicular-traceried gable window, a version of that in church gable.
Church interior is little-altered, with gallery; stained glass windows including one by Stephen Adam (at w gallery).
